What you should be reading this weekend!

Hi my dear lovely followers! How has your week been? It’s Friday, It’s Friday!!! I can’t believe it’s Friday! I have only 2 more days until my very first ever 10k!! Wouldn’t you know it, but my Sciatica is totally acting up again. I can’t sit or stand… knock on wood & cross your fingers it settles down before the big run. I’m thinking only Positive thoughts here 🙂

So, are per the Usual, grab a mug of tea or coffee, a fresh pressed juice or a glass of wine (depending on your time zone) & enjoy these reads I’ve found for you this week 🙂

Conscious Diva’s have 2 great posts this week. Have you ever wondered ‘to diet or not to diet‘, well what if you don’t want to do either? Check out this great post (& email me for a quick chat, I’m here to help!) Also, find out where you are & what’s holding you back & how to be free!

By now you should know Kris Carr (Crazy Sexy Life) & Marie Forleo right… Right??? Well they did a little business Q&A here, & it’s great. Has anyone signed up for Marie’s B~School? I’d love to, but it’s not in the cards right now. If you have, please share, I’d love to know how it’s going 🙂

It’s Danielle LaPonte’s B~day today, & she’s giving us a deal (pay what you can) for her books Your Big Beautiful Book Plan. I’m thinking of heading over there today to snag my own copy, but hurry, it’s only on today!

You are what you eat (& Digest). Beauty comes from Within. These are all very true. Here Diary of a nutritionist tells us why what we eat affects our skin.

What’s the difference between a Human Being & a Human Doing? Dr. Sukhi tells us in this video. He’s always got great videos, we’ve been quite followers for quite a long time, even before we moved out west!

GreenMedInfo is a site full of info. I mean FULL. It can take days just to go thru it, all the while finding interesting things along the way. This week my top 2 post are about the special herb Turmeric & how it can help over 500 different symptoms ( I also have it as one of my SuperFoods & really do believe that everyone should incorporate it into their daliy routines~ don’t know how? email me to find out!) , as well, they have a great post on 6 bodily tissues that can be re~generated thru Nutrition! how cool is that!

Did you know that May is Eye Health Month? I’ve been having some strange issues with my eyes, & with this little reminder, I’m off to make an appointment 🙂 In the meantime, WakeUp World has some herbs I can use for Eye Health here!

Do you know how Toxins affect your Weight loss (or lack of it)? It’s a viscious circle, detoxing, toxins, weight loss, weight gain, etc. Here Detoxinista sheds some light on the subject. For more personal info, contact me!

Wanna cheap way to eat superfoods (less then 1$ cheap)? WakeUp World has 12! Can’t afford the 1$, stop spending your money on these so called healthy foods & you will!

There is still a few days to get in on the Veeva Happy Pills Coupon. Did you order your yet? And if you still have a few moments or sips of tea, please take a quick look at my survey as it would help me out a lot 🙂

So when you get up on Sunday & are enjoying your mug of tea or Coffee, please say a little ‘whoopwhoop’ for me & my 10k, & have a very very lovely weekend!

New Reads for the Week!

Hey all! Excited for another Weekend of Fun? Before you head off & make amazing plans, grab a coffee, tea (or glass of wine~ depending on the time zone), & take a read on some of the things I found interesting this week!

Conscious Diva’s had another article that I liked. It talked about how you see the glass; being half full or half empty. With practice, I now see the glass half full, but it wasn’t always that way for me either. If you have trouble seeing the good in situations take a peek at this article. I especially like #1 🙂

Kris Carr’s Crazy~Sexy~Life has done it again. An article that you should not skip:

Do you notice your thoughts? Do you really notice them. After reading this article you may be surprised at how many times you do, say, or think things without even knowing! Afterwards, check out this post from the Feel~Good~Tribe about some nasty lies you may be telling yourself!

Do you have young boys that you are raising? I have two… & as a Girl who grew up with a HUGE majority of Women in my life, there is a constant struggle with how to raise them properly. It took a few years for my husband to convince me that farting & burping really were ‘normal’ for boys! I really appreciated reading this article about raising confident sons & think if you have boys in your life, then it’s worth the read for sure!

Have you ever gone to Danielle’s site? I’ve signed up for her ‘daily truth bombs‘ & they are awesome! The one that got me this week was Everything~ Absolutly Everything ~ Is Progress! Sweet right!!

Kris Carr (again) has a great article on Living & Raw foods. What’s the difference you ask, well check out the post! As a family that tries to eat as healthy as possible, the habit of eating more Living foods as a pose to Raw foods is still in the making. One step at a time right! 🙂

I loved this post, 7 Mental Mistakes, little ways that are keeping you from living better. I’m printing these off & keeping them in my pocket! Lately I’ve been VERY vigilant on NOT living or worrying about the Past & Future, I have to say that it’s really quite liberating! Give it a try!

Remember Vienda? My new Guru/Mentor? Well, Week 4 & Week 5 of live your life on purpose is up….. Are you following along? How do you Love it so far?

With all this Training I’m doing for the 1/2 Marathon in Vancouver on June 24th, I thought this post about Fueling was great. I always thought it was only important to fuel when racing, not while training, boy was I wrong! I love Vega a lot. Being Vegan & Gluten Free, I feel 100000% safe using their products.

Love Yoga & Food~ why not check out the Yoga of Eating Part 1 Part 2 & Part 3. What do you think? 😉

I have a Tremendous urge to make my Own very Personal Sprouts in my Kitchen. I also have a Strong Fear that they will go ‘bad’ & make us all sick…. Here’s hoping that all goes well ~ 🙂 Kris Carr just put out a post on some easy steps to making your own here, & how’s this for timing…. a great post on using your sprouts!  Do you do your own sprouts?

Here is an article by Wake Up World about being the Catalyst. Are you a Catalyst? I love their site!!!

Do you compost? I think that EVERYONE should be composting. It’s easier then you may think. You don’t need a lot of space (inside or outside). In an apartment, mansion, trailer, the city or country, EVERYONE should compost. Read here.

 

What did you think of this weekends ‘must read’ posts? Are you keeping up with my Guru? What are your plans for the weekend? My sister is in town & we’re heading off on a Whale Watching tour in Tofino. It’s also my baby boy’s 7th Birthday. WoW, where did that time go??
